    Now this is a project that Revitalize Comanche, Inc. is very, very proud of because members of the group realize how important it is for children to have a sense of their community and their own roots.

    The coloring book explains that once their were dinosaurs right here in Comanche County. It goes on to explain to the children that right where they sit and color was once the feeding ground for monstrous shaggy beasts known as buffalo and that the Comanche Indians followed the buffalo because they depended on them for their very lives.

    The book continues in a chronology with age appropriate explanations of events that conclude with Comanche County being established with a courthouse that today sits right on the Comanche public square. We call that courthouse Old Cora, the oldest standing log courthouses in Texas!

    About Fredda Jones

    Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.
